Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs if you prefer about 1-2 pounds
  • 3 cups vegetables, chopped or diced pick your favorites!
  • 1 TBSP seasoning see post for my favorites!
  • 2 tsp fresh herbs like rosemary if available
  • 8 slices bacon

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 
  • Place strips of bacon onto a baking rack that fits inside a sheet pan.

  • Cook bacon for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place bacon on a plate. Cover bacon with foil and set aside for later. Remove the baking rack from the sheet pan.
  • Coat chicken and vegetables with bacon drippings from the sheet pan. Make sure the sheet pan is covered with drippings to ensure chicken doesn't stick to pan. Shake the seasoning on top of the chicken and the vegetables. Top with other fresh herbs if you have some on hand.
  • Bake chicken in the oven for 15 minutes. Turn over chicken and return to the oven to bake more. Cook for an additional 10 mins.
  • Remove the pan from the oven, and add strips of bacon to the top of the chicken. Bake for 5 minutes more, or until chicken reaches 165 degrees and the bacon is hot and crispy again.
    partially baked bacon is placed on top of almost done chicken to finish cooking in the oven.
  • Serve immediately, and enjoy!
